North American 23-City Tour Begins September 30 and Includes Carnegie Hall and Walt Disney Concert Hall Dates

NEW YORK, NY--(MARKET WIRE)--Sep 28, 2004 -- "Four decades is a long time to wait for anything, but in this case it was worth every minute."-- Newsweek

An all-new studio recording of "SMiLE" -- often called the most famous unfinished and unreleased album in pop music history -- will be made available worldwide by Nonesuch Records on September 28, 2004, more than thirty-seven years after its anticipated release date. "SMiLE" is produced and arranged by Brian Wilson and features the ten-member band that has supported him on tour over the past five years, augmented by an eight-piece string and horn section.

SMiLE," which was written by Beach Boys founder Brian Wilson in collaboration with lyricist Van Dyke Parks, was intended as the follow-up to the band's groundbreaking "Pet Sounds." Record jackets and booklets had been printed and ads had been taken out heralding the record's January 1967 release date. One of the album's songs, "Good Vibrations" -- which Wilson called a "pocket symphony" -- became the band's first million-selling single, topping the charts in both the U.S. and the U.K. After Leonard Bernstein heard Wilson perform a solo piano version of "Surf's Up" -- an impressionistic ballad also intended for "SMiLE" -- he deemed the song "an important contribution to 20th century music" and hailed Wilson's gifts as a composer.

Drove downtown in the rain

Nine-thirty on a Tuesday night

Just to check out the late-night record shop

Call it impulsive, call it compulsive, call it insane

But when I'm surrounded I just can't stop.

It's a matter of instinct, it's a matter of conditioning, it's a matter of fact

You can call me Pavlov's dog

Ring a bell and I'll salivate. How'd you like that?

Dr. Lendy tell me you're not just a pedagogue

Whenever I see the name Brian Wilson, all I think about are Ladies; especially Bare Naked ones .

Brian Wilson Lyrics

by Barenaked Ladies

Drove downtown in the rain nine-thirty on a Tuesday night,

just to check out the late-night record shop.

Call it impulsive, call it compulsive, call it insane;

but when I'm surrounded I just can't stop.

It's a matter of instinct, it's a matter of conditioning,

It's a matter of fact.

You can call me Pavlov's dog

Ring a bell and I'll salivate- how'd you like that?

Dr. Landy tell me you're not just a pedagogue,

cause right now I'm

[Chorus]

Lying in bed just like Brian Wilson did

Well I'm lying in bed just like Brian Wilson did.

So I'm lying here, just starting at the ceiling tiles.

and I'm thinking about what to think about.

Just listening and relistening to Smiley Smile,

and I'm wondering if this is some kind of creative drought

because I am

[Chorus]

And if you want to find me I'll be out in the sandbox,

wondering where the hell all the love has gone.

Playing my guitar and building castles in the sun,

and singing "Fun, Fun, Fun."

[Chorus]

I had a dream that I was three hundred pounds

and though I was very heavy,

I floated 'til I couldn't see the ground

I floated 'til I couldn't see the ground

Somebody help me, I couldn't see the ground

Somebody help me, I couldn't see the ground

Somebody help me because I'm

[Chorus]

Drove downtown in the rain nine-thirty on a Tuesday night.

Just to check out the late-night record shop.

Call it impulsive, call it compulsive, call it insane;

but when I'm surrounded I just can't stop.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
